“A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step”
Aavhan is the act of evocation, the recall of a searing memory to the conscious mind.
Aavhan, IIT Bombay's premiere sports festival, is a call to all those who live, dream and breathe sports. After the phenomenal success of the inaugural edition, the finest talent from across the country will be here again, ready to sweat it out for glory.
Here at IITB, we believe in putting our fears behind us, and our dreams in front. We believe that growth is more the unlearning of old limits than the learning of old strengths. We believe that the only impossible journey is the one you never begin. We've already embarked on this voyage of a lifetime and we want you to be a part of this enthralling extravaganza.
With the gleaming floodlights shimmering off the grass and the tranquil waters, the home contingent waits in anticipation. Bring it on!
